What a delicious, hearty root soup! My husband does not like fennel, so we used marjoram and it was a complete hit. I will definitely use this recipe again.

Cut down on the sodium by halving the broth and adding 2 cups of water instead. Added about a tablespoon of vinegar (before the lentils), a teaspoon of celery salt and a tablespoon of fresh-ground marjoram. No fennel, so the marjoram was definitely a different flavor, but so tasty! Used regular beets because that's what we had, so the color was fun too.

I made this without the beets (gold ones not in this area) and without fennel. I just wanted to make this hearty soup! It was delicious!

The taste was very different but good. I don't use root vegetables very often so I followed the directions very closely. Even before I started to let it simmer there was very little liquid to cook 1 C of lentils. I ended up adding at least two cups of broth. It simmered for over an hour and lentils were just done.
